October 7th, 2015 by Adam Siegel

Ebsco, based on conversations with and surveys of libraries, publishers, vendors, and others in the industry, estimates that serials inflation will run 4-6% next year.  The report also notes: “Libraries continue to spend large sums on publisher electronic journal packages (also known as ‘Big Deals,’) which continue to consume a higher percentage of the library spend year over year. Librarians continue to favor the purchase of e-content over print and packaged content over individual subscriptions.”
